Lighter Cream Cheese Caramel Flan

Anyone up for a French/ Portuguese kind of thing today? Left with a tub of leftover cream cheese and the smatterings of some yoghurt which hadn’t been used at the end of a busy week.

Strawberry Peach Custard Trifle

Trifle. Hearing the word reminds me of good childhood memories of those packet trifles you could get from Tesco. Trifle is such a versatile thing. The traditional version and one that I know and remember is a sponge cake and berries covered with jelly, layers of sweet, creamy custard and topped with whipped cream and… Continue reading Strawberry Peach Custard Trifle
